If he wants to take a break from doing Snake's voice, then that's totally understandable. I just hope they can find somebody to fill in his shoes.

There'll only be one david hayter, but I don't think it'll be too hard to find another voice actor who'll do a convincing solid snake. But you'll be able to tell it isn't him.

How did this get approved with that title?

Army_of_Darkness2083d ago (Edited 2083d ago )

The ones that approved this article doesn't know how to read/ write English themselves that's why this got approved. LOL!

On topic: Is he really that busy to not be able to do the voice of snake in a MGS game? a game that comes out every several years?!
Oh well, whatever, as long as the next game is great I'm all in.

Yeah I know, I mean, even North Americans can somewhat write in, and understand English.

I want to who edited title. Is Trainwreck!

Not even the glorious Mark Hamill could do Joker forever. The vocal baton has to be passed eventually.

It's simple - David Hayter asked for way more money, and is leveraging the fans to get him more money. Don't people get it? There's a reason he's tagging Kojima and Konami Productions. He wants them to know that without him their game won't sell, and will piss tons of fans off. He's right, the reaction by and large has been terrible.

DragonKnight2083d ago (Edited 2083d ago )

It's definitely possible for someone to do justice to Snake. I mean, does anyone remember Mako? The iconic voice of Aku in Samurai Jack, or Iroh in Avatar: The Last Airbender? Mako died before the third season of Avatar and was replaced by an American voice actor named Greg Baldwin (who was in Assassin's Creed 2, Rainbow 6: Lockdown, F.E.A.R., Bioshock) who studied Mako's voice so much that he was able to perfectly duplicate it. It's uncanny how identical he sounds.

This is a video that switches the roles of Iroh and Aku as voiced by Mako.

This is the tribute song done for Mako by Greg Baldwin after his death and after Greg replaced him on Avatar.

So we can see that, even if Hayter doesn't do Snake, he isn't irreplaceable. It's just a matter of finding the right voice actor.

It'd be sad but I'd deal. I would have to have snake's Japanese voice actor though

I'm sorry but I completely disagree with you. I understand if the man wants to take a break from the series, however like the comment above me said, there is only one David Hayter and he is in many fans mind THE solid snake. I cant imagine snakes voice being any different.

The fantastic voice acting he did in MGS4 will never be portrayed any better by someone different especially since he's been doing snakes voice for years!

I will not be happy if this was the case.

theDECAY2083d ago

I actually think he did best in MGS2. Every game after that the voice sounds tired and redundant, like he's trying really hard for it to be Snake.

jon12342083d ago

no no no, his best work, is and always will be MGS, nothing compares to it.

Omar912083d ago

@ Decay

I feel like many people dislike his voice in MGS4 because of how "shabby" it sounds. I think it made snake as a character stand out even more because it made sense! His aging body is taking a tole on him and his voice just fits so well with what is happening to him throughout the game. This was done intentional for that reason. He did a amazing job in every mgs game, which is why him leaving and having someone else portray as snake would change the character in general.

I respect your opinion though!

cyclindk2083d ago

Clint Eastwood should do the trick nicely.

OlgerO2083d ago

Nolan North to the rescue!

WitWolfy2082d ago

I doubt he will be able to give it justice bud.. Good suggestion though!

Sam Fisher2082d ago

At this point i wouldnt be surprised if nolan is in the game somehow, the guy sells himself like a Vietnamese whore

1Victor2083d ago

@Kamikaze 135 you mean his size 52" shoes because it will be hard to do equal to his work. It would be ok would I like it Nooooooooooo

007Bond2083d ago

No Kojima better wait until he's ready

GuyThatPlaysGames2083d ago

I think a character voice like Borat would be cool

RedDevils2082d ago

LOL cool in a way that you would mute it, yeh xd
